Case filed against Viqarunnisa principal, two teachers over student's suicide
A case has been filed against three teachers of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College, including its Principal Naznin Ferdous, over the suicide of a Class-IX student, Aritree Adhikari.
The two others accused are school’s morning shift in-charge Jinat Akhtar and class teacher Hasna Hena.
Addition Deputy Commissioner of Motijheel Zone Shibli Noman said Dilip Adhikari, father of victim, filed the case with Paltan Police Station on Tuesday night accusing the trio of provoking Aritee to committing suicide.
Adhriti Odhikari, daughter of Dilip Odhikari, reportedly committed suicide at her Shantinagar residence in the city on Monday.
The suicidal incident took place as teachers allegedly rebuked Adhriti and her father for carrying mobile phone during examination.
The incident sparked widespread protests among the students and their guardians and they staged demonstration demanding the removal of its principal Nazneen Ferdous.
Meanwhile, morning shift in-charge Jinat Akhtar was suspended and she was served a show-cause notice, asking why action should not be taken against her.
